All of the visits, be they general or theme-based, offer the possibility of establishing links with the school curriculums, adapted to suit each level.

Circuits, workshops, and events at the Children's Gallery enable children from 2 years upwards to familiarise themselves with modern and contemporary art through hands-on exhibits or experimentation.

Practical Information

Booking is mandatory for all groups
 Booking centre: +33 (0)1 44 78 12 57
 open from Monday to Friday from 9:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.

The Programme of Activities

The visits are intended for all school levels. They offer an approach to the works through concepts that are fundamental in learning the language of creation, and they are associated with the education themes addressed in the school curriculums. Attentive to their visitors, the speaker adapts the visit to suit the age and level of knowledge of the group. The theme you are interested in is not included in our visit proposals? Do not hesitate to ask our booking team.

The theme circuits for young visitors, for visiting the Museum or the exhibitions, are based on specific hands-on educational tools or on body movement work.

The workshops for young visitors take place in two stages. A first phase of questioning, and of plastic art experimentation, leads on to an individual or collective achievement. The children then go and encounter the works in the Museum or in the exhibitions. Through their experiments, they will see things differently, forge ties, and establish correspondences, and a dialogue is set up.

Presentation of the Activities

Since its creation, the Pompidou Centre has endeavoured to make works accessible to all and to enable visitors to discover art and culture by accompanying them with mediations and facilitations that are as diverse as they are rich.

In the visitor development department of the visitor division of the Pompidou Centre, the accessibility section co-ordinates actions intended for disabled visitors.

A think centre for imagining offers adapted to suit every disability, it works in collaboration with the programming teams of the Centre, with the curators of the Museum who are in charge of the dance or cinema activities, and with the reading and disability mission of the public reference library. Keeping a permanent watch over the layout of the exhibitions, the passageways and gangways in the building, and the signage, it collaborates with the technical teams on the improvements to be made, and with the scenographers, graphic designers, and the people in charge of signage, of the building, and of life safety.

The team in charge of accessibility is at the disposal of individual visitors or group leaders (teachers, monitors, leaders of associations or of specialised centres /schools, school inclusion classes (CLIS), high schools, secondary schools, primary schools, infant & nursery schools, etc.) for preparing your visit to the Pompidou Centre.
Specific requests are examined on a case-by-case basis so as to propose the programme of activities that is most appropriate for you.

The Pompidou Centre has set up a website for disabled visitors that is designed to guarantee accessibility for all to information and to resources. Find out about our activities on the website: http://www.handicap.centrepompidou.fr

Audioguide adapté au public déficient visuel

Afin de permettre aux visiteurs malvoyants ou aveugles de découvrir de manière autonome le Centre Pompidou, le Pôle accessibilité du Centre Pompidou a conçu plusieurs parcours spécifiques pour audioguide, proposant des commentaires en audiodescription d’œuvres des collections du Musée national d’art moderne. Ces parcours s’accompagnent chacun d’un livret spécifique en gros caractères qui enrichit la visite et permet aux publics de garder le souvenir de cette expérience.

1. Parcours autour des collections modernes : Modernités Plurielles

Un premier parcours guide les visiteurs dans leur découverte de treize chefs-d’œuvre de la période moderne (de 1905 à 1970), présentée au niveau 5 du musée, dans le cadre du nouvel accrochage intitulé Modernités plurielles. Cette nouvelle présentation des collections met en avant une vision de l’art moderne renouvelée et élargie. Elle s’ouvre aux différents pays du monde comme à des esthétiques très variées et parfois peu représentées ou sous-estimées.

Pour montrer la richesse de cet accrochage, les visiteurs trouveront dans cet audioguide un parcours en audiodescription autour d’œuvres et d’artistes emblématiques de cette période, tels que Picasso, Delaunay, Chagall, Matisse et Miró. Des informations complètes à travers la description détaillée de chaque œuvre, la biographie des artistes ainsi que les commentaires sur les principaux courants artistiques correspondant à ces œuvres (fauvisme, primitivisme, surréalisme, etc.) sont ainsi disponibles.

Vous pouvez écouter dès maintenant la totalité de ce parcours audioguidé en cliquant ici

Un deuxième parcours permet aux visiteurs de découvrir quinze œuvres emblématiques des collections contemporaines (de 1960 à nos jours).
Ce parcours chronologique, des années 1960 à nos jours, est proposé au niveau 4 du Musée. Il fait la part belle aux acquisitions récentes et s’ouvre sur quelques grandes figures de l’art contemporain : Joseph Beuys, Jean Dubuffet, Pierre Soulages, Andy Warhol...
Les mouvements et les tendances désormais historiques sont également représentés : le minimalisme, l’arte povera, Fluxus, le pop art... Parallèlement des salles pluridisciplinaires historiques ou thématiques sont consacrées à l’architecture, au design, à la photographie et aux arts graphiques.

Social Field

Planning your visit

You are an employee or a volunteer in a social field structure?
We propose a set of free training and discovery visits in order to enable you to plan and prepare for your future visit to the Pompidou Centre with your group.
The aim of these visits is to enable you to acquaint yourself with the Pompidou Centre and its collections, to discover the various activities proposed, and to meet the team dedicated to relations with correspondents working in the social field.
We propose an awareness-raising programme in two parts:

1. Discovery visit
Discovery visit to the museum or exhibitions. The aim of this first visit is to enable you to acquaint yourself with the Pompidou Centre and its collections, to discover the various activities proposed, and to meet and talk to the team dedicated to the social field about planning and preparing your visit projects.
2. Training sessions
This set of training visits prepares you for taking your group on a visit by yourself. You can choose to participate in one or more visits in any order your wish:
- Workshop on practical understanding of the work. This workshop will give you keys to analysis and methodological advice so that you can express interpretations on the basis of observation of a work. This sensitivity-based approach will enable you to bring your group into touch with all of the works of art presented at the Museum.
- Mediation initiation workshop. The workshops in the permanent collections area and practical workshops in the activities rooms will enable you to approach art from a different perspective through fun activities that you will be able to propose to your group in the Museum or on your own site.
- Theme visits. These visits enable you to deepen your knowledge of the Museum by addressing a particular theme, of sensitive or societal nature. By forging ties between the works from different periods or by different artists, the theme visits will help you to give meaning to your group visit.
Information and programme of the forthcoming organised visits: click here (link to a pdf file of the programme of visits)
If you wish to take part, it is essential that you enrol by email: champsocial@centrepompidou.fr

Activities with your group

 You may also create a customised visit, echoing subjects of interest to your group, based around temporary exhibitions or permanent collections.

Assistance with your visit.

Below are the various resources that can, more particularly, help you to plan and prepare for a visit:
The visit assistance dossiers
These kits, specifically designed for social field correspondents, are intended to help you to prepare for your visits to be conducted by yourself. These kits propose a presentation of the Pompidou Centre, landmarks and references in the collections or exhibitions, enlightenment about a selection of works, and practical information and resources. Thus, the following are available: a specific dossier or kit on the modern collections, one on the contemporary collections, theme dossiers (women in art, recycling and repurposing objects, ...).
The educational dossiers
Over 100 educational dossiers (teaching kits), initially intended for students and teachers, are available to you for preparing your visit, and documenting yourself on art, its figures or its trends.
The Art Session podcasts
The young people from Art Session have produced podcasts so as to pass on what they feel about works that have attracted their attention. A way of addressing their generation by formulating their personal approach to art.
The Pompidou Centre Channel on Dailymotion
Find the trailers/teasers for the exhibitions, videos on the museum and its activities, filmed debates, and interviews on the Pompidou Centre Dailymotion Channel.

The “Living Together” mission

Since 2004, the Pompidou Centre has been committed to the “Living Together” (“Vivre ensemble” ) mission set up by the French Ministry for Culture and Communications so as to take forward “tolerance, respect for differences, and the desire to Live Together”. All 28 member establishments of this mission propose, to visitors from the social field and their correspondents, appropriate pricing, awareness-raising visits, and preferential accompaniment through a dedicated contact person within the institution. The group also proposes a common three-monthly newsletter, organises an annual forum, and proposes inter-establishment discovery visit weeks.
A charter for welcoming visitors from the social field has been signed by all of the member establishments of the Living Together Mission.


L’association ARTZ

Dans le cadre sa politique d’accessibilité, le Centre Pompidou développe depuis plusieurs années des projets, des activités et des services destinés à favoriser l’accueil de tous les publics.
En étroite collaboration avec l'association ARTZ, qui organise des activités artistiques et des sorties culturelles adaptées aux personnes atteintes de la maladie d’Alzheimer, le Centre Pompidou propose, dès février 2013, des cycles de visites spécifiques au sein de la collection du Centre Pompidou. Ce projet naissant a pour objectif d’offrir aux malades un accès à des expériences artistiques adaptées à leurs facultés persistantes, à un stade léger, modéré ou modérément sévère de la pathologie. En les sensibilisant et en les intégrant toutes les deux semaines à la découverte ou la redécouverte de plusieurs œuvres d’art, ces visites permettent de changer l’image qu’ils se font de leur maladie, de modifier celle de leur entourage et du grand public afin de contribuer à l’insertion et à la participation sociale des malades.
Ces sorties culturelles ont pour vocation de stimuler les fonctions cognitives des personnes, de faire émerger leurs capacités persistantes, de réduire leurs troubles psycho-comportementaux et d’être plus en harmonie avec leur environnement.Lors de chaque visite, un espace de parole leur est ouvert afin de les encourager à exprimer leurs impressions, leurs émotions et leurs expériences vécues. Ces visites ont pour bénéfice de les mettre en confiance, de respecter leur parole et valoriser continuellement leur individualité au sein du groupe.Une phase de restitution est organisée à la fin de chaque cycle de visites afin de permettre à chacun de retrouver le souvenir de cette expérience et de prolonger les relations nouées au sein du groupe.Cette expérience permet d’évaluer et de mesurer l’évolution des relations sociales des malades, notamment avec les aidants familiaux et les soignants.

Le Centre Pompidou mène ce projet en collaboration avec l’association Artz, qui a développé une expertise sur la médiation appropriée et démontré l’impact de ces visites sur le fonctionnement cognitif et sur les troubles psycho-comportementaux des personnes atteintes de la maladie d’Alzheimer.

La mise en œuvre de cette collaboration a été rendue possible grâce au soutien de la Fondation Swiss Life.

Le Fonds de dotation Entreprendre pour aider

Le Centre Pompidou a, depuis sa création, la volonté d’accueillir tous les publics en leur donnant accès à la création de notre temps.

Le Fonds de dotation Entreprendre pour Aider soutient le Centre Pompidou dans son projet de visites-conférences proposées à des personnes souffrant de troubles psychiques et neurocognitifs, car il participe de cette philosophie commune qui met l’art au service de la santé mentale.

Grâce à ce mécénat, le Centre Pompidou et Entreprendre pour Aider invitent de petits groupes de personnes (5 à 12 personnes, accompagnants non compris) en situation de handicap mental ou psychique à venir découvrir pour la première fois, sur un cycle de deux séances, le Centre Pompidou et les collections du Musée d’art moderne, accompagnés de conférenciers du Centre Pompidou spécialisés en neuropédagogie et proposant une médiation adaptée.

Ce cycle de 2 séances de visites adaptées s’adresse à des centres d’accueil, des foyers de vie, des hôpitaux ou des associations, qui souhaiteraient faire découvrir pour la première fois à leurs groupes le Centre Pompidou et connaître l’approche proposée par les conférenciers pour échanger autour des œuvres.
Les visites s’adressent à des personnes de tous âges, enfants, adolescents ou adultes.

Pour réserver un cycle gratuit de deux visites :

À partir du 26 août, téléphonez à la cellule réservation : 01 44 78 12 57 de 9h30 à 13h.
Précisez que vous souhaitez réserver le cycle de visites-découverte « Entreprendre pour aider ».
Ces visites peuvent être programmées à votre convenance, entre septembre 2013 et juin 2014, mais il vous faudra réserver les deux dates du cycle en même temps au moment de votre appel à la cellule réservation.
Vous pouvez réserver ces visites tous les jours de la semaine sauf le mardi, le dimanche et le samedi après-midi, sous réserve de disponibilité des créneaux souhaités.
La visite est proposée dès 9h30 avant l’ouverture au public à 11h.

La réservation doit se faire au minimum un mois à l’avance avant la date souhaitée.
